Let’s talk about general contractors.
For most folks who don’t work in the construction business, there’s a vague understanding of the term general contractor. You know you need to hire one for your upcoming construction project, but what does one actually do?
You’re about to find out.
What’s Involved With Being a General Contractor?
Being a general contractor means overseeing and organizing a lot of moving parts.
A general contractor is responsible for every aspect of a construction project, including all of the pre-construction planning, obtaining permits, coordinating the schedule and project timeline, and much more.
Before construction even begins, your general contractor will help you set everything up to ensure you’re on track for a successful finished product. Some of these pre-construction services include:
- Conceptual estimates
- Budget development
- Bid document preparation and review
- Project planning
- Master schedule development
Then, once the project is underway, your general contractor will provide you with:
- Field supervision
- Government agency permits and approvals
- Trade contract procurement and administration
- Construction scheduling and coordination
- On-site quality control, testing, and inspection
- Job-site safety assurance
- Consulting services for new projects
- Insight into innovative systems and building materials
- Site inspections and building surveys
- Construction market surveys
- Interior design
